Adele Skyfall

The song is very Bond-ish.

The wait is over as Adele’s new single for “Skyfall”. Written by the Grammy-winning British singer and her “Rolling in the Deep” collaborator Paul Epworth.

The lyrics of the soulful ballad itself are said to be fitting the plot and the tragedy that will appear in the upcoming Sam Mendes-directed James Bond movie. “For this is the end/ I’ve drowned and dreamed this moment/ So overdue, I owe them/ Swept away, I’m stolen,” Adele croons the dark-themed track with her signature heavy voice.

“Skyfall”, which was initially planned to be titled “Let the Skyfall”, marks Adele’s first song since she released her mega-hit album 21. She follows the footsteps of previous A-list musicians who made hits by performing the original soundtrack for the 007 film franchise.

“I was a little hesitant at first to be involved with the theme song for Skyfall. There’s a lot of instant spotlight and pressure when it comes to a Bond song”, Adele told Huffington Post.

Take a listen to the song below.

    Considering her ’60s sound and look, she is the perfect artist to sing a Bond theme song. And I wasn’t disappointed by the result – what a gorgeous, menlancholy song…
